Chairman Royce Announces Syria HearingPress Release
Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) will convene a hearing Thursday, April 27 entitled “Syria After the Missile Strikes: Policy Options.” The hearing will begin at 10 a.m.
Chairman Royce on the hearing: “Assad’s war has killed nearly half a million innocent men, women and children and driven 14 million Syrians from their homes. The turmoil of this brutality including chemical weapons has allowed ISIS to capitalize. And the previous administration’s dithering only made things worse. Now, moving ahead, this administration must work with Congress to lay out clear policy goals.”
